Construct a Multisensor:
To construct a multisensor, you will need to apply skills learned in previous PublicSensors modules. If you need a refresher on how breadboards work or a step-by-step guide for setting up a temperature, light, or distance sensor, please refer back to previous webpages!
When constructing your multisensor, you can chose to include any combination of available sensors. Below we provide diagrams outlining how to construct a Temperature + Light sensor, a Distance + Light sensor, a Temperature + Distance sensor, and a Temperature + Light + Distance sensor.
If you have access to additional sensors, get creative with what combinations of data variables can help you answer questions about your environment!
